A businessman who once was export manager of #IRGC's Kerman Motor in #UAE was falsely represented as a Strategic Studies Analyst by #ManotoTV, an #Iranian opposition TV! Few days ago, he was also interviewed by #BBCPersian! He has not written an article in his life! Who is he?!🤔
How on earth someone attends in a meeting against #Iran's Islamic Regime with #FakhrAvar & Saghar Kasraee in 2012! And just three years later, he is being appointed as export manager of #IRGC's Kerman Motor in #UAE?! It is strange! May be this guy is a double agent?!
Real political & strategic studies analysts such as Mahnaz Shirali, Scientology University Professor might boycott #ManotoTV over inviting people like #FarbodTalaee who pretends to be an analyst (in fact is a businessman who cooperated with #IRGC).

It’s time for my traditional train Twitter thread after @MunSecConf. As our Chairman @ischinger said, we’re all tired now. But the most important thing is that we had a weekend of vivid debates! #MSC2020
I’m glad that the title of our #MSCreport#Westlessness – triggered some of them. We think of the MSR as a conversation starter for the conference, and it worked well this year – in particular because some thought it accurately described the zeitgeist, and others disagreed.
Are you still wondering – like my my two-year old (“Papa, was soll das heißen?"| "Dad, what does this even mean?”) – what this term is meant to convey? You can re-watch my presentation of the #MSCreport in Berlin. #Westlessness securityconference.org/en/medialibrar…

1. The mess in #Libya is at least as complex as the mess in #Afghanistan: In Afghanistan the #Kabul-government, supported by #NATO, controls little more than Kabul.

In #Libya "Prime Minister" Fayez #Sarraj only controls a small part in the North, around #Tripoli.

2. While Khalifa #Haftar, the commander of the Libyan National Army (#LNA), controls the larger part of #Libya. He does not control greater #Tripoli and in the South local warlords rule.

[Thread] #Europe just announced it would trigger the Dispute resolution mechanism #DRM of the #JCPOA. This is a big move but my guess is many people in #DC will wrongly assume this is an alignment to tougher US position on #Iran. /1 gov.uk/government/new…
On the contrary, the #EU maintains its balanced position btw #US and #Iran in order to keep door open for real negotiations on nuke and beyond. Let’s see why: /2
Last episode : despite the killing of Soleimani, #Iran stayed in the #JCPoA but continued its counter pressure policy on Jan. 5th through its “5th step” going against the nuke deal. The #US asked again #Europe to leave the #JCPoA. /3

#BREAKING NEWS!!!

@unhcr #UNHCR

According to research by the weekly magazine "@sternde", employees of the @UN refugee agency @Refugees were able to enable #Africans to move to the #West in exchange for #cash payments. Among other things,
the #employees issued false #papers with which the #Africans made it onto the coveted lists of the so-called "resettlement" program.
Several western states, including #Germany, offer refugees who are particularly worthy of #protection a secure future in their country. Above all,
people who are at risk of #disease and #persecution should benefit from this.However, since there are currently only 50,000 to 60,000 such resettlements per year worldwide, the chances of getting one of the places are negligible.

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony

Current German attitudes to #Brexit

As we're approaching new Brexit negotiations at the beginning of the #transition period, let me give you a feel for current #German attitudes to the #UK, its politics & departure from the #EU.
2/Temperate
It's important to understand the debate in #Germany about #Brexit has been much less emotional than in the UK. We've been astounded at the decision. On balance, we believe the benefits of membership outweigh the EU's deficiencies & Brexit isn't in national interest.
3/Interested
We followed the UK's debate, w/ peaks of interest last yr during the struggle between government & parliament &, again, during the elections. (Your choice has, forgive me, caused some amusement.)
We also realised that #Brexit is unavoidable. We welcome the certainty.
